Today marks the beginning of another evaluation period, meaning coaches are now allowed in at the Peach Jam. As expected, John Calipari and the Kentucky staff are front and center to watch their top targets, specifically Jalen Duren.
Jack Pilgrim is on the scene and captured these photos of Calipari and Orlando Antigua getting ready for this morning’s game between Team Final, featuring Duren and Derek Lively II, and Seattle Rotary. Duren’s other suitors, Memphis’ Penny Hardaway and Miami’s Jim Larrañaga, are also there with their staffs.
